Winter Sport Notice2020 Winter Sport Notice


Welcome back to 2020, the year has started well and the children have settled very quickly back into school mode.

We welcome all our new Whānau to our Whanganui East School Community.

With renovations well underway the students have adapted well to working out of different learning spaces and are able to watch the progress.  We are anticipating that Rooms 1 and 2 and 4 will be back into their learning spaces towards the end of the term.

It has been great that we are able to offer all our children their stationery at no cost, being part of the School Donations Scheme means that we will not be asking parents for the cost of curriculum-related expenses.

Swimming has started well and this year our focus is on Water Safety skills.  Swimming is part of the Curriculum and all children are expected to swim everyday (except Friday).  Please ensure uniforms and towels are named to avoid confusion.

All children have been given a permission booklet for parents to sign to allow them access onto the Internet.
